Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has ignited controversy by advocating for the division of the United States into two separate nations, one “red” and the other “blue,” amid claims of an impending civil war. Greene, known for her far-right views, appeared on Fox News on Tuesday to defend her position, with host Sean Hannity questioning her on how such division could be healed without a split.
While Greene stated that she doesn’t want a civil war, she argued that the nation was moving in that direction and action must be taken. “The last thing I ever want to see in America is a civil war. No one wants that — at least everyone I know would never want that — but it’s going that direction, and we have to do something about it,” she said.
Greene claimed that she speaks with many people who are “sick and tired and fed up with being bullied by the left, abused by the left, and disrespected by the left.” She went on to state that “our ideas, our policies, and our ways of life have become so far apart that it’s just coming to that point.”
The Congresswoman’s position was outlined on Twitter on Presidents’ Day, where she called for a “national divorce.” Greene suggested that the nation should be separated into red and blue states, and the federal government should be reduced in size. She described it not as a civil war but as “a legal agreement to separate our ideological and political disagreements by states while maintaining our legal union.”
Hannity questioned Greene on whether she believed that the left and right could work together or if there was a “growing move” towards a split because the “divide is so deep.” Greene responded by saying that she thinks “this is a much bigger movement than most people in Washington even realize.” She added that the response to her message “should tell people a lot.”
We need a national divorce.
We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government.
Everyone I talk to says this.
From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are… https://t.co/Azn8YF1UUy

The Congresswoman’s call for the division of the US into separate red and blue states has been met with widespread criticism, with many labeling it as a dangerous and unpatriotic idea. Some political commentators have pointed out that such a division would be highly impractical, with many states having mixed political leanings. Others have questioned how a split could be achieved peacefully and without violence.
This is not the first time that Greene has courted controversy since being elected to Congress. She has been accused of promoting extremist views and supporting conspiracy theories, leading to calls for her to be expelled from Congress.
People saying national divorce is a bad idea because the left will never stop trying to control us literally make the case for national divorce.
We don’t want a civil war.
We’re not surrendering.
We’re tired of complaining with no change and want to protect our way of life.

Well if “Red America” would be land of Law & order & low taxes, then I certainly would be moving into Red America, and never even so much as set foot into anarchy Blue America.
The Dems should shut up and just let her and her chavrusah keep talking this stuff right through November 2024. I have to admire Hannity for treating this as a serious interview.
Why should she not advocate this? What’s even slightly controversial about it? It’s not an unreasonable idea. If enough people want it, it will happen. If they don’t (and right now they don’t) it won’t happen. That’s all. There’s no moral principle that says the USA must forever remain its current size. That’s like saying the British Empire could not shrink, and the states were wrong to leave it.
This is saying “So we can’t get along? Give up.” What will happen when the right right and the moderates have similar problems? There no way this could ever happen as a “divorce” and she shouldn’t be given the time of day about this. She should be thrown in the funny farm. Privatize schooling and let the left destroy itself.
The reason that is a dumb idea is that even in “Red” states there are very large “Blue” pockets, and vice-versa. And splitting up the US would leave both sections seriously weakened. Supporting federalism, and respecting states’ right to take policies different than the Federal government in areas the Constitution assigned to the states, would reduce much of the current tension (e.g. the Blues stop trying to schecht Red State babies, and the Reds stop trying to tell Blue State woman to do).
Go ask the UK how Brexit is working out for them.
The stupidity that flows out of her mouth daily is astonishing. She is brainless.
This treasonous ignoramus should be expelled from Congress. An undeniable indefensible violation of her oath of office.
To rt: There is no law against saying stupid stuff or being stupid. Lay off Ms. Greene.
To 147: If it’s law and order you want, consider Poland or Hungary. I will buy you the ticket.
Keep in mind that Greene is colossally stupid. Among other things, she believes that California forest fires are caused by Jew-controlled space lasers.
Unfortunately, she is 1000% right, because the alternative is a second bloody civil war, which is unavoidable.
And it’s happening sooner than later.
Two hundred million well armed patriotic America loving God believing Americans, will not sit by and watch their country destroyed in front of their eyes, by the filthy leftist Marxist degenerate DemonRats.
And their biggest fury will be aimed at the liberal secular Godless leftist Jews, who were in the vanguard of the treasonous Marxist left in their effort to destroy and bankrupt our country morally and financially.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to pack our bags before it’s too late, our days in this country are numbered.
Huju, respectfully, just because someone is stupid doesn’t mean they’re not dangerous.
A member of Congress takes an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. Secession is unconstitutional, advocating it is illegal.
I can smell that roasting Korbon Pesach now!
Just think of it…
Ukraine dukes it out with Russia,
UN & NATO join in.
The US splits into Reb and Blue at the same time IRans say ‘oopps’!
Eretz Yisroel is…
Welcome that man on the White Donkey!
To rt: I was just trying to be funny. I guess I am not as funny as I think.
That filthy demented Alzheimer diseased treasonous America hating gangster in the White House, is a thousand times more dangerous to the Jews of America than a thousand MTG’s
In response to “qliq” 1.19 pm
If we don’t pack our bags and leave ASAP, that roasted Korban Pesach you smell, might God forbid be non other than us.
HASHEM has given us back on a silver platter our beloved ERETZ YISROEL
and is telling us in no uncertain terms “ KINDERLECH KUMTZ AHEIM”
my beloved children come home.
Those of us who will heed the request,will merit to do the Korban Pesach, those who will not might become one
If you take a moment to actually listen to her speak, you will see that she is certainly not “stupid”. Whatever interesting theories she might have read and promoted do not change her intellectual abilities.
Her idea is, of course, not “patriotic”, because that would involve splitting the country into two, which would mean a reduction in the size of the country. But, as Rav Elchonon wrote, Nationalism is idolatry, and Jews will one day see that the Nationalist idol as well as the newest idol, democracy, will fail them. Chacham adif miNavi.
